About the event

The Clown discovers and negotiates the world, and all that’s in it, by playing with it.

When we play, we are full of energy, alert and spontaneous. We look for playfulness in others and listen to creative impulses in ourselves. When playing we tend not to judge ourselves. If we are enjoying a game, we are fully involved in it. There is total belief and honesty and lots of FUN!

Nothing is hidden.

Play allows us, encourages us, to take risks. We don’t want to play safe all the time. Play awakens and gives full rein to the imagination, the root of creativity.

A performance based on play builds a direct relationship with the audienceThe study of Clown is a marvellous tool for performers of all persuasions as it demands an honest, intimate relationship with the audience.
